My Brother


No, thats not him. Thats the cartoon character he's been drawing since he was in primary school. I found that one under our house and then another one on the neighbor's driveway! He was a really cheeky little monkey.

Anyway, he'll be visiting us for one night tonight. 20 years ago, I couldn't stand living with him and yet today, I CLEANED the house just because he's coming. Tomorrow I will cook breakfast for him! Sheesh! What happened?! We used to fight and FIGHT...and FIGHT. Now we get along famously. (Ha ha...I like saying that...famously) Can't remember where I read it but it sounds like from some Famous Five story.

How does that happen? Fight for the first 15 years, go off to study and work, meet up again after a few years and then not fight anymore. Seriously, I don't think we've had a fight since we both lived at home......probably just small disagreements. Maybe we just don't see enough of each other.

The Chinese used to say, "fighting=caring" & "scolding=loving"

My younger brother and I were never very close when we were growing up, but now we're as close as...well...brothers. What happens is that we all grow up and realize what's important. Hope you have a good visit.

My brother still claims that I beat him up on a regular basis. I don't remember it that way. I do remember him constantly annoying me.

Today I have a great deal of love and respect for him. I am so glad that all six of get along "famously."

Enjoy your visit.

I think though you may have fought in the past, over the years you have changed and recognise your sibling relationship.

I have the same thing with my sister. There is no relationship like it. I am so glad that you get to see him!

It's the same thing with me and my sister... "hated" her when we grew up, missing her now we live far apart.. Have fun with the sibling ;)

Blood is thicker than water. That's what my mom said everytime my sis and I fought. I'm still not that close to her but oh well, at least we know that we are there for each other whenever we need support.

Yes, the cheeky monkey was REAL cheeky. I'm still amazed how different he is now.
